Tahir Square, Puerta del Sol, Syntagma Square, Wall Street…Cairo, Madrid, Athens, New York…as many cities, as many places where different nations started camping to take the streets over, take public spaces back, take democracy back. This documentary tells the story of a movement that first took place on the banks of the Nile to spread across the world and try to change democratic interactions.

The movie Take the Square was shot in 2011, covering the various social movements (Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street, Indignados…) which unsettled the planet. Watch the trailer here.

This short film chronicles recent events in Spain where hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets to demand the resignation of the government and an end to police brutality. Many of the protests ended in clashes with the police. Since the stand off began on September 25th, the images of police brutality have travelled the world over, shocking and inspiring people across Europe and leading to an international day of action on September 29th. This film tells the story of why so many people took to the streets and follows these events as they unfolded.
